Queen Edith’s and the nearby green belt has a wealth of green-spaces and also several community gardening and food growing projects. They are very diverse:
- Some are very new, like the Wulfstan Way rain gardens or Nightingale community garden, some are a few years old like Rock Road Library garden, and some, like Rock Allotments, are more than 100 years old.
- Several spaces are owned and managed by City Council Streets and Open Spaces – but some spaces belong to local schools (including the new Queen Edith’s school gardens) or churches.
- Most are volunteer-run or involve volunteers, including from Streets and Open Spaces.
The very small group of Queen Edith’s in Bloom (QEiB) volunteers would like to support these projects and help expand some of them. This can include simple networking between keen individuals in existing projects (including the new constituted group Nightingale Gardeners – info here) so they can more easily choose to work together and share resources.
We could do more but would need more volunteers.
See the QEiB webpage on the Nightingale garden website for more info.
